11:04 pm
there a comin together, if you will, between dald trump andhe rnc? >> i believe there iss a coming together, yes, and really a lot of the acrimony ass you call it is r really a lot of minderststanding. donald trurump always understoo as the nominee of the republican party he wouould be working w w republican nationall cocommitte the senenator'all campapaign committee, conongressional commitittee rga anand other institututions because as leade of the party his goal is notot only to ee likt himselelf but ensurere a republican majory in the congrs and help elect governors and other downstream members as well. >> i want to turn to -- it soded though -- as though that there was a pledge of deeper coeration certainly than there ha been. th may not b a terrific amount, but a pledge of traditnal relationsp between th nominee and the rnc
11:05 pm
including fundraising, organization campaigning for candates. is tt a fr -- fai statemt? >> donald trum has been talking to the chairman othe party over the coursee of the last f weeksnd has hadery good phone calls as recently as sterday and he has made it clear that he's looking forward to working with him to pull the party togeer. as far as he's concerned as he becos the presumpti nominee he undstands that the c chairman of thearty h an responsibility reay toork to lp bring the unitys well togethererh trump. and so this is -- it's a process, it' an oningg procs, we're getting cser to this point where he will b the presumptive nominee andhen the nomin nominee. we belve that there will not be aonteed conntion in clevevand and we don't want to wait until clevela to start puttin together the apparatus necessary to r a uted republican nomination in e fall. >>ou have two candidates out
11:06 pm
there, governor kasich wh very fe delegates, about 300 points behind -- delegates behind yr caidate is of course tedcruz. ted cruz is -- ifnything has raisedhe intensity of his attacks on dond ump. yo thought about that and the appropriateesponse as even the candide is tking abo being more presidential iththe fac of >> well, he is raisinghe level of att becau he's losing and he knows he's losing a he's trying to change the narrative but he's ing. wead a great day in newk on tuesday, we willave another eat day onuesd in the northeast state where we expect to do very well in pennsylvania, ode island, delaware, marynd, connecticut. so cruzsrying to dis strakt om what's going on by m making a lo of noise.
